2019 Annual Report
2019 was a wonderful year for Vermont Humanities. We were reminded of the power of the humanities every day.
Syrian musician Kinan Azmeh and CityBand closed our Fall Conference at the University of Vermont. We welcomed Congressman John Lewis and his March Trilogy co-author Andrew Aydin to the Flynn Center in Burlington for the biggest event in our organization’s history as part of Vermont Reads. Thirteen schools hosted Humanities Camps around the state, and we distributed over 13,000 free books through our programs.
We hope that you enjoy learning more about this pivotal year, and continue to support our important work to bring the humanities to all corners of our state.
From Our Board Chair
“I am always moved by Vermonters of all ages and backgrounds pausing for shared learning.”
